What, you say, you were intrigued by my last post and want to try another one? Roads of Rome is pretty standard. Much closer to the standard approach of the genre — to build a road, while overcoming obstacles, gathering a gem or two, making sure your workers are fed, and finishing before dark. And the standard interface…the only distinguishing feature here is that the tiny workers are wearing togas and sandals. The side story, such as it is, is that the emperor is keeping the General in the field fixing roads in order to keep him away from his daughter. I won’t give away the ending, suffice it to say they are depending on you.
Survival score: Straight through, 10-20 hours.
